Join The Ivy for an evening of theater with local playwright and artist Alonzo LaMont, performing his original extended monologue, "B-Side Man"! This event will take place outdoors, in person on The Ivy's covered back patio.
This play contains strong language which may be unsuitable for children.
Through an extended monologue, an African-American man reflects on growing up black but not angry, his life as a playwright, a short-lived exotic dancing experience, and his free-thinking liberal arts background. Ultimately it’s his transformation from “singular satellite” to married man that forces him to face the challenge of continuing to write, or abandoning his creative journey altogether. A personal tragedy is just one of the elements that declares individuality may not be the end-all, be-all it’s cracked up to be.
“B-Side Man” is a coming-of-age journey that explores what it means to grow up with views that run against the prevailing cultural, racial and artistic tides.
